Default opinion on this hop combo

Brewing an American IPA this weekend using leftover hops...what do you guys make of using these 4 together: Warrior, Simcoe, Centennial, Cascade??

Was thinking Warrior and Simcoe as 60 or 45 min additions...then Cascades, Centennials for late additions/dry-hopping.

Opinions?

I'm thinking that's going to be very hoppy I use Centennial and Cascade combos all the time and have done it with Warrior in an IPA but never Simcoe so I'm not one to opine on it. My IPA was nice. leaf Warrior 1 oz for 75 min and leaf Centennial 1 oz for 15 with a dry hop Cascade pellets for 12 days.
What IBU do you come up with in a calculator?

Almost 100 IBU after moving the Simcoe to a later addition...seemed a bit too much at the beginning.

Thinking:

1 oz. Warrior at 60 min
.5 oz Simcoe and .5 Centennial at 15 min
.5 oz Cascade and another .25 oz Centennial at 5 min
Then dry-hop with .25 oz Centennial and .5 Cascades

All pellets.

That'll use up everything I have left.

Why not...I'd do it and just might next IPA. Isn't that combo what goes into Dogfish 60?

I'd move some of that warrior to the end to up that dry hop, its a lil small for an IPA. I'd also FWH the remaining warrior to give some more hop character to this

Nothing wrong with where the Simcoe sits right now, however it remains one of my favorite hops to dry hop with.

That combination sounds almost exactly like a batch I brewed a couple weeks ago, albeit not in the same ratios. I love the combo of simcoe and warrior; makes for an excellent IPA.

Regarding dry-hopping with Warrior: having never tried it as such (I always thought it was largely useful for bittering alone, a la Magnum), what exactly does it lend to the aroma?

I'd say a mild citrus, it'll go well with the cascade & centennial. Its a great bittering hop, but that doesnt mean its only useful there.
